Use that on the wife when she jams the grates causing you to dump the fire to clean out?

Appears to have an air inlet spinner @ one end and threaded adjustments at multiple locations and a weight of particular proportion at the other end. hmmmm.

It is intended to be installed horizontally in the stove just above the fire to burn volatiles. Sort of a hot blast fixture. The lower part sits outside the stove and the upper part above the fire. The picture is very bad because the shadow of the piece interferes with identification. I had to download it and clean it up.

Thats interesting. I've pondered about a perforated pipe running the length of the fire box that would hover just above the coal bed to evenly distribute secondary combustion air for a more efficient burn. I must think too much sometimes lol.

I still could not read anything but with the shadows gone I could at least see how it was made.

Would be a nice feature of the forum if you could come up with more.

Looks like it should work. Why do you say it doesn't?

Incidentally, my idea for avoiding explosions is to run a wire filament above the coal bed, heat it red hot with with electricity, so the gases will be ignited before they reach the explosive point. Maybe combine it with the piece O chit, Amazon can sell them together as a kit.

well... i should not say it doesn't but rather it does not in a more modern, quality coal burning stove. Im sure the claim that it eliminates clinkers is false across the board (that has more to do with the quality of coal and design of the coal stove), anyways... its essentially adding secondary air above the coal bed, cooler air (most coal stoves do this already using warmer air that rises around the coal bed first), The same can be done simply by drilling a hole in your stove above the firebox (I guess alot of antique stoves have this feature build in for Bit burning, etc.) I guess if it really did what it says we would ALL be using them today :lol:
